BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist, alleging his negligence caused a wreck and injuries.
Ciera Ford filed a complaint on April 20 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Jerold R. Clausius, alleging the defendant failed in his duty to exercise ordinary care to avoid putting himself or others in danger.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 12, 2015, she was driving west on West Highway 50 in O'Fallon when she collided with the defendant's vehicle while he attempted to cross the highway.
As a result, Ford claims she suffered physical injuries and was compelled to submit to treatment, causing her to have out-of-pocket expenses for medical bills.
The plaintiff alleges Clausius violated a stop sign, failed to keep a careful lookout and failed to yield the right-of-way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages in an amount in excess of $50,000, costs of suit and for any further relief deemed necessary and just.
She is represented by Christoper K. Geldmacher of Sauter Sullivan LLC in St. Louis.
